Worst.Ad.Ever!! Well probably not, but what is Sony thinking? here is the image, then we will dissect:

  1. The girls seem to old to be enjoying a Pony game, I could be wrong, but 13-15 year olds don't tend to play with Pony type things in public.
  2. Shouldn't some of the other girlz have PSP's as well? Wouldn't that make more sense?
  3. If you are going to call them least show them as real gamers and not casual. The girlz tag makes it seem like you are calling them l33t gamerz (see I can do it to).
  4. Did you really write OMG Lilac PSP? OMFG WTF is wrong with U? Lolz
  5. Is it just me or do the middle two girlz look like they are laughing at the girl with the PSP?
What would I have done?
  1. Show three - four girls (no Z dammit) sitting around their basement (on beanbags, Sumos or couches) playing PSP. Angle two of them so that the screens are visible.
  2. Show real girls, casual, comfortable clothing, hanging out with friends.
  3. the viewpoint perspective is not bad it just needs to feel more natural

Hey, you know what girls like? Lilac. And ponies.

This is like that Nintendo magazine telling girls that the DS can teach them to cook and let them play with virtual babies.

Cool Concept Art

In other gaming news I am a sucker for a great concept picture, this one from the upcoming Bethesda Softworks game Wet was just too cool for school:

Well the game is launching soon and it is described as a highly stylized 3rd person action game. Shoot anywhere, anytime gunplay (think Stranglehold) combined with sword fighting and amazing acrobatics. The story is supposed to be zany, serious and gory, plus the main character is ridonculously hot. I like any game that can turn the concept image above into a near perfect in-game model below. There is a demo live on the UK PSN store, gonna try it tonight!

Whiskey of the Year?

Late in 2015 a relatively inexpensive, frankly cheap, whisky from Canada called Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye won a very prestigious award - Worldwide Whiskey of the Year beating out out champions from Scotland, Japan and the US.  In the words of the reviewer Jim Murray:

“Crown Royal Northern Harvest pops up out of nowhere and changes the game,” said Murray of the whisky, which he awarded a record-tying 97.5 out of 100 points. “It certainly puts the rye into Canadian Rye. To say this is a masterpiece is barely doing it justice.”

Naturally as a developing Whiskey connoisseur I wanted to try this $40 bottle of Rye Whiskey myself, but an announcement like that broke the walls of the drinking world and the Northern Harvest Rye has been selling out for nearly 6 months with further accolades coming in the meantime:

In addition to being named 2016 World Whisky of the Year, Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye received a double gold medal at this year’s San Francisco World Spirits Competition.…

PAX East 2016 Coverage Part 2

Sorry for the long delay, life gets real busy around here!  So on to more PAX East coverage, one of the things I love best about the show is how diverse it is.  I attended panels on games, but also on diversity, tabletop, game design and more.  I also get a chance to check out hardware such as the HTC Vibe and Occulus Rift as well as unconventional playtests like board games.  PAX East is an incredible experience in how involved the attendees are, everyone is happy, cosplayers are everywhere and the vibe is always incredibly positive.  On to the coverage from the show:

PAX East 2016 Preview: Betrayal at House on the Hill – Widow’s Walk Expansion

PAX East is not all about video games or nerd culture; it also has a robust tabletop and roleplaying experience that is easy to lose hours in, if not days, during the conference.  At this year’s show I was able to try the upcoming expansion of the classic game Betrayal at House on the Hill called Widow’s Walk. The original game, released nearly …
